Just fetched mumís medical records, will be getting help to find out more, but not from the Hospital Trust. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the type of MRSA she had.

When she left hospital she was still colonised with it, despite me telling the staff I had contact with vulnerable people, and that my dad would be coming in for cataract treatment in the coming months. Bearing in mind these particular bimbos never admitted she had it in the first place, I suppose I canít really expect much more.

If anyone can tell me what sort of MRSA pseudomonas aeruginosa is, Iíd appreciate knowing, is it one of the more virulent type?

Iím off for a strong drink but will be online later.

i really hope the professionals that frequent this forum can and will answer maria's question

from what i have read then its more than likely caused by either a ventilator or urinary tract catheter or tube

maria i am soo sorry you are having to find this out by reading your poor mums notes instead of being informed properly by the medical team at the time who were caring for her
speak soon

Pseudomonas is a completely different type of bacteria from mrsa. They are nothing to do with each other. Your mother probably had both by the sound of it. Pseudomonas is a normal bacteria in the environment and can be found in damp places everywhere such as sinks in your own home. Like mrsa it can get a grip on vulnerable people and also like mrsa it is resistant to many commonly used antibiotics, but it is not mrsa.

Back again. I was so exasperated by the Trusts incompetence that I typed my name in the subject and vice versa. Anyway have looked the up Pseudomonas, following Alan's reply and can see from info on the web that yes she did indeed have differing infections, she also had streptoccus (handwriting hard to read).

I'm plodding on so I can glean enough information from the notes to ask questions, and I will be using AVMA. I will share my experience here, if it works well than others can try this way.

Speak later.
